We have a Windows Server 2003 machine set up with Exchange 6.5. We have around 10 users set up to be able to logon to the server, and up until now, all have had "email@example.com" e-mail addresses associated with their account that were linked to Exchange mailboxes. In the "E-mail Addresses" tab of each user, it would list their "firstname.lastname@example.org" e-mail and then list out "email@example.com" and then an X.400 entry.
Well, now I've run into a problem. One of our users is working remotely, so all he needs to be able to do is login to the server, but not keep an Exchange mailbox associated with him. So I deleted him from our POP3 connector that pulls his e-mail from our domain's e-mail server, so e-mails sent to him now stay on the domain's e-mail server. That works fine, but when any of our local users send an e-mail to him (firstname.lastname@example.org), it doesn't get through. There are no errors, the e-mail just doesn't show up in his webmail. I think it's because our local server is seeing that we are sending to email@example.com and it still thinks it needs to send that mail to a local mailbox or something. How do I check to make sure the e-mails going to him are being sent outside our local server and not going into a mailbox?
